Package: flash-kernel
Version: 3.99
Severity: normal


I just upgraded my Debian installation from an older testing to Buster
and the kernel update failed with:

        Setting up initramfs-tools (0.133+deb10u1) ...
        update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)
        Processing triggers for initramfs-tools (0.133+deb10u1) ...
        update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.16.0-2-armmp
        Unsupported platform.
        run-parts: /etc/initramfs/post-update.d//flash-kernel exited with 
return code 1
        dpkg: error processing package initramfs-tools (--configure):
         installed initramfs-tools package post-installation script subprocess 
returned error exit status 1
        Errors were encountered while processing:
        E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

In my case flash-kernel is just casually installed and not needed to
make the machine bootable with the new kernel. I wonder if "Unsupported
platform" should not be an error in the kernel update trigger.

Best regards
